Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles (Captain No Beard; book 8) by Carole P. Roman

The Synopsis:

Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles is another great voyage into problem solving and friendship, as well as an adventurous trip into the imagination.

Join the Captain No Beard and his friends as they learn the value of sharing our troubles with others and that help is always there when we need it.

I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are my own.


This was such sweet book! The family values presented here as well as the learning experience and use of imagination definitely sold this book for me!

The way the siblings talk to one another and the lesson learned at the end, is a fabulous way to bring youngsters together and learn from a good book. The frog’s life-cycle was also nicely illustrated and explained so kiddos get to learn and see what frog’s look like throughout their lives.

I liked how the author showed that even though siblings can be bothersome sometimes (*innocent smiley face*) they are worth every minute of their trouble! The only thing that could have made this book better would be the illustrations, I feel that if the illustrations would have been more “crisp” and the colors deeper, the book would have engaged the younger audience better, but I still loved this book (and so did my 2 year old brother!).

I give it 5 out of 5 stars! Recommended to all parents (or siblings) as a fabulous kid’s book!
